How to Enjoy Music With Your Apple Watch

The Apple Watch has become a necessary accessory in the modern day. Incorporating features such as a music player has become an all-in-one device that can be used for many purposes.

It is important to note that Apple Watch cannot play music without the use of bluetooth headphones or earbuds. The device does not have any speakers. So to enjoy music with your watch, you will need to use either a wireless bluetooth headset or earbuds connected by cable. You will still be able to use your Apple Watch without an iPhone nearby. However, it won’t be able to answer calls or receive notifications. You can listen to music through Bluetooth headphones, though, by following these steps:

Step 1: Add songs to your playlist.

The designer bands for Apple Watch have different colors and styles that you can replace and use anytime. The watch itself has 8GB of storage space, and up to 2GB can be used to store music, which is about 500 songs. Start the Apple Watch app on your phone, then go to Music to get music on your Watch.

First, use the Playlist Limit setting to decide how many songs you want to sync. You can set a limit based on how much space you have or how many pieces you have. Once that’s done, you can pick the playlist you want to sync.

Just keep in mind that if the number of songs on the playlist goes over the limit you set, not all of them will make it. If you don’t want this to happen, make a playlist and use the Playlist Limit setting as a guide.

Now comes the hard part: waiting. Put your Watch on its charger and relax while it syncs your playlist. It takes time, so you might want to do this overnight.

Step 2: Pair the Watch with Bluetooth headphones.

You’ll have to use bluetooth headphones because the Watch doesn’t have a headphone jack. We’ve picked some of the best (and some of the best cheap Bluetooth headphones) for you here:

Put your headphones (or speakers) into pairing mode to connect the Watch to them. Then, go to the Settings app on the Watch and click on Bluetooth. Your headphones should show up. Just choose them from the list, and you’re good to go.

Step 3: Pick the source and press the “Play” button.

Once the music has synced with your Watch and headphones are in, the last step is to change the Music app as the Watch’s source for music.

Go to the Music app on the Watch. Force touch (tap and push on the screen) to see more options—select Source, followed by Apple Watch. You can listen to your favorite songs or podcasts on the go without having to lug around your phone or tablet. The following are some of the best Apple Watch apps for music lovers:

  • Spotify: With Spotify, you can access your favorite playlists and artists with just one tap. You can also control what’s playing on your wrist if you don’t have an iPhone.
  • Pandora Radio: With Pandora Radio, you’ll have access to millions of songs and personalized radio stations from the palm of your hand.
  • Apple Music: If you’re an Apple Music subscriber, this app is perfect for streaming all your favorite tunes from anywhere in the world.
